Marking Hard Boiled Eggs

Bronze Post Medal for All Time! 205 Posts

OK, you've brought some eggs home from the grocery store and just hard-boiled some up for later use. But now that they are done, how do you store them and tell them from the raw eggs in the fridge? Here's a tip I learned from my mom way back when I was a kid.


The first time I saw her doing it I thought she had lost her marbles! She simply marked both ends of the hard boiled egg with pencil scribbles! That's it. Then she could tell the boiled ones from the raw ones.

I happened to think of this only because I just finished boiling some up for myself and marked them. It's funny the little things we pick up from our parents and never even think about, isn't it?

Another way is to simply spin them on the counter. Hard cooked eggs will spin smoothly, while raw ones will wobble.

My mom always marked her hard cooked eggs with a crayola X.
